Keep Cosy this December

IMAG0610On days like today, my woodburning stove is definitely my favourite part of the cottage. I’ve mentioned it before (Candlesticks) but it’s -8 degrees outside, and doesn’t feel much warmer indoors, so the stove is both much loved and needed. Even with it going full out last night (here it is – with an empty log basket, help! More chopping required I think) I was feeling the chill: I’m going to ask for a blanket for Christmas, so I can cosy up by the stove, watch telly (current favourites go from one extreme to the other – The Killing and Made in Chelsea, both on catch up) and attempt to hibernate till spring time….

Cornwall’s The Atlantic Blanket Company is a blissful place to browse for blankets: just looking at these images makes me want to reach out and touch them.

Whilst bargain hunter extraordinaire Alison Cork’s lambswool throws from her online boutique Alison at Home are well-priced and soft to the touch: these two, with their relaxed checks and soft grey hues, are both tempting…
